  • ***** Olympus DS5000 combo - November 23, 2012
    by James R.
  • We bought the DS5000 recorders and companion transcription software. It is one of the best purchases we have ever made. We are a small law firm and not only do we lawyers find the equipment and system to be just what we need, our support staff is equally happy with it. Also, the customer relations and support are great.

  • ***** no comparison - October 04, 2012
    by J Herring
  • The recorder I purchased, the Olympus DS5000 is fantastic. There is absolutely no comparison with tape recorders and other imitation (cheap) digital recorders. I constantly use my DS5000 for dictation, recording meetings, and recording seminars. While the price might frighten some folks, this recorder is leading technology. And since there are few moving parts, there is little to go wrong! The service I received from Recorders.com was first class. I recommended the DS5000 to another lawyer in Nashville and he is exceptionally pleased.

  • ***** delighted with our purchase - October 04, 2012
    by James
  • We have been delighted with our purchase. It was easy to set up, it is easy to use, and our legal assistants really like it. There are plenty of options but one does not have to navigate thru a lot of clutter if you just want the basics. Moreover, the process of purchase and set up could not have been better. Everyone was very pleasant, helpful and informative. As you can tell, I am really happy with our decision to purchase what we did through your company. We have NO complaints.

  • Finally a device that made giving up our analog system worth it. We use both the DS5000 and AS5000 transcription system. We are saving a tremendous amount of time every week now that we are automated. The learning curve was simple to say the least. Great system.

  • ***** Works Great - May 06, 2011
    by James W.
  • Reluctant to buy at first, our practice had been using the DS-4000 for almost 3 years and was very happy with the product. The DS5000 feels the same in your hand but is much easier to use with menu controls being centralized to the front. We are using both models with out any problems, but the DS5000 is an enhanced version of our 4000. We are very pleased with the support and the software is greatly improved. Thank you Recorders.com for helping us transition, the experience was flawless.

  • ***** easy to operate - June 08, 2012
    by anon
  • The recorder is easy to operate. The entire recorder, and the display in particular, looks like it was designed thirty years ago. Despite the dated appearance, it does the job well. It has been durable so far, surviving a fall from the roof of my car that made me cringe but did no damage. It also includes a leather case that is appropriate for an investment like this. Rechargeable via USB or the included cradle, which is convenient.

  • ***** professional device - June 08, 2012
    by FREQuser
  • I use this recorder for my job and use it multiple times a day for both long and short recordings. The clarity is pretty good on it with minimal unwanted noise. If you want this recorder to really shine add an external mic. It is very expensive though, if it wasnt given to me I would be using my cheaper WS-500M, which is a great recorder too with the same clarity as the 5000, although is NOT meant for durability!!!

  • ***** Olympus DS-5000 Review - Good, but - November 25, 2012
    by Mark
  • My Dragon Medical Program works great when dictating directly into the iMac that I use for the final transcription. However, in the office, I dictate into the DS-5000 and use the MacScribe program to transcribe. The additional interface causes more errors. Unfortunately, it does not seem possible to "train" the recorder input as easily as training directly onto the computer, and none of the literature that I can find has instructions on how to go about training a digital voice recorder. I would have given this a 4 star if the training were easier. MN
